ACP Denver Event

Last week I had the fabulous opportunity to hang out with a number of ACPs (Adobe Community Professionals), other community members, and some Adobe staff from the communities programs. Adobe has been doing more outreach in these areas in an attempt to build up the community through specific regional summits like this over the past year or so. I think it’s wonderful. During the full-day portion of the event, I was fortunate enough to be asked to speak on Animate CC alongside fellow author Myra Ferguson. Check out Myra’s new book coming out very soon! ¬†Take a peek at some

We’ll see why AMF is so useful whether being used in ColdFusion or Java get an overview of how to use these technologies together to create great applications. Joseph Labrecque – Leveraging BlazeDS, Java, and Flex: Dynamic Data Transfer Flex developers have it easy when using ColdFusion to transfer data over the Action Message Format (AMF) transfer protocol because these services are built into the core ColdFusion server.

The D2W Conference is coming up fast!

D2W is the designer/developer/workflow conference held in Kansas City, MO. This year, it is taking place at the Crowne Plaza hotel on Friday July 15th and Saturday the 16th, following a preconferece workshop day. What attracted me to this event was its unique focus on workflow across design and development areas. I am not aware of any other conference that claims such a focus, and considering workflow is something we designers and developers deal with every day (whether we realize it or not), happens to be an excellent opportunity to really concentrate on the issues involved in this work. Bringing
